Sean Connery threatens actions against Marbella court

Mon 11th Oct 2010

Sean Connery has confirmed he is to take legal action against the court of Marbella for having publicly revealed his suspected implication in a property fraud case under investigation on the Costa del Sol.

British Ambassador in Spain, Giles Paxman, has sent a letter drafted and signed by the 007 actor to the judge in charge of what has been called the 'Goldfinger' case.

Connery says the fact that his charges have been made public before he has had a chance to defend himself or declare his innocence has 'affected his public image', and caused 'notable, evident and quantifiable' financial loss to him.

The movie star says neither he nor his wife have received any written communication of the offences he is accused of from either the court or any other legal, fiscal or police authority in Spain and claims he has no idea what the charges narrate to, nor the evidence found that allegedly incriminates him.

Connery has called for the court to release details to him of any action that 'has been taken, is in class lesson, or is envisaged for the future'.

Paxman has asked for all relative documents to be sent to Connery's permanent residence in the Bahamas.

The case involves in the region 20 suspects, including former mayoress of Marbella, Julián Muñoz, and his property assessor and leading suspect in the infamous Malaya case, Juan Antonio Roca.

It relates to illegalities concerning the land in Marbella where Connery's villa was situated and where he himself lived for decades, on the Malibú residential complex.
